Welcome to New Pakistan. Can't wait for the religious wars to spread here.
I don't think that is what either the author or the responder was referring to at all.You're right. Canada should never allow anyone in from a country where there has been any sort of political or religious conflict.
Hang on - that would mean that none of us would be here.
We'll have to be careful - next thing will be those Newfoundlanders and Labradorians asking their in homeland inside of Alberta and equal rights.AS, with 25-50,000 Newfoundlanders and Labradorians now living in Alberta, we should give them their own clothing when Alberta becomes a republic.
Which is all the same stuff that has been said before about other groups. Going at it this way, we should never have 'allowed' Little Italy in Toronto to develop. It's either empty rhetoric, or it's something even more sinister.I don't think that is what either the author or the responder was referring to at all.
From their writings, I gather they are saying in a round about way that allowing too much multiculturalism, especially those that develop in pockets of society where an entire neighbourhoods become "a replica of the old country in every way" is failed multiculturalism.
Aren't they really saying that if multiculturalism goes on unchecked and immigrants are not forced (I'm not sure that's the right word, perhaps encouraged?) into mainstream Canadian society, the country will eventually have too many radical groups at odds with each other with the potential for the same types of violence those immigrants tried to escape by coming here?
The end result being the country could fracture and be a hostile environment in which to live for all Canadians.
